New Visitation Policies Due to Coronavirus Outbreak

We are currently allowing one designated visitor per patient. Visitors must 18 and older.

Patients who have tested positive or are under evaluation for COVID-19 will not be permitted visitors. 
The designated visitor is not allowed to change during the patient’s stay, as we need to limit the number of visitors in our hospitals. Compassionate exceptions will be made as appropriate.
Emergency departments: We are trying to keep the number of people in our emergency departments to a minimum. When a patient comes to one of our emergency rooms with a visitor, and the patient cannot be seen right away, we will ask the visitor to wait in the car. When it is time for the patient to be seen, we will call the visitor, who can be with the patient during examination. This visitor must remain with the patient at all times and will not be allowed to walk through the hospital.
Thank you for adhering to these restrictions as we try to protect everyone in our facilities from the spread of COVID-19.
